New Story about the 1945 Michigan Train Wreck

Robert Bye and James Wilson, both historians, met at the dedication of the Michigan Train Wreck monument in July 2012.  Since that time they have written a story of the three Navy WAVES who perished in the train crash.  One of the  WAVES was Ensign Rose Ellen Wilson, Jim's cousin. 

The story is called "Liver and Bacon" because that was the meal one of the WAVES had eaten on the train before the crash.  This is a fascinating and well written account of what happened to these three young women in the months leading up to their deaths on August 9, 1945.

THANK YOU to Jim and Bob for sharing this piece of history with the community of Michigan!
